ADULT WAIVER RENEWAL DIVISION OF DEVELOPMENTAL DISABILITIES DRAFT POSTED FOR PUBLIC COMMENT FEBRUARY 9, 2017 SUMMARY OF MAJOR CHANGES

Illinois

~~“EMPLOYMENT AND DAY PROGRAMS
Access to Supported Employment. Service definitions in Appendix C have been modified to strengthen and enhance access to Supported Employment Programs. These service definitions have been developed with input from the Employment First stakeholder workgroup. Along with these proposed definitions, we are considering new rate methodologies to support the programs. The stakeholder workgroup has provided suggestions that are now being reviewed in accordance with available funding levels. Questions being considered are rates reflecting geographic differences and/or acuity-based components versus standard, statewide rates. The inclusion of incentives to increase working hours is also being discussed. In addition, we are proposing revised language in Appendix C that would allow Participants to receive Supported Employment Services while also enrolled or waiting to be enrolled in Vocational
Rehabilitation Services, as long as the services are not duplicated or delivered on the same date and time.”
